 Mineral Production of British Columbia in 1900  $16,407,645  -v^......  ^M^��  -1 ''-n^-..  Mineral Production of Kooteqay Iq 1800  $10,562,032  NINTH YEAR.  NELSON, RO., THURSDAY MORNING,  APRIL 11, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MOYIE MINES CLOSED DOWN  THE LOW PRICE OF   LEAD AND  SILVER ASSIGNED AS CAUSE.  JIM HILL IN THE SADDLE  HIS   LIEUTENANTS   CARRY   THE  WORKS AT ROSSLAND  Over Three Hundred Men Thrown Out  of Employment While the Ore  Bodies Increase in Size.  A large force of men arrived iu  town  yesterday   from  Moyie and  they are just now figuring as  to  what direction they will take.   The  men had the not encouraging story  to tell that all the properties of the  St. Eugene Consolidated  have suspended operations indefinitely, and  this without   any  warning whatever.    It is alleged  on   the part of  the management   that  the  ruling  prices for lead aud silver" do not  justify them  in  continuing  work,  while the men dispose to  the idea  that the "move is simply in  accordance with a prearranged scheme to  force the government to bonus the  refinery    proposition.      Whatever  the object,  the   mines  have  been  closed down and when they will be  started again is a matter of speculation.   The St. Eugene, Lake Shore  and Moyie are the  mines immediately   affected.     They   have been  worked in combine and hence when  one closes down the others follow  suit.     There is said to be about  three day's work for the mill; when  it too, will   shut   down, and the  camp   will   be    practically    dead.  When   th"i .resurrection   will  take  place it is hard to say, but until the  tone of the silver and lead markets  improve there.is little hope for good  times in the camp.    The St. Eugene  is the property which has made the  camp.    The  story of its discovery  and development has bpen to!d in  the columns of The Tribune and  does not need to be repeated.    The  ore had been shipped by contract to  Mexico to be used as a flux to blend  the   product   of   the south, but in  comparatively    small     quantities.  Arrangements  had   been  made to  send   the .output  to Swansea for  treatment, and  at the present moment several shiploads are on the  way to the  old country, the facilities of the British Columbia smelters being  too limited to handle it.  Everything looked  favorable to a  continuation  of work,   so that  it  came .rather as a surprise to the  men when they were called upon to  seud in their time on Monday.  There wero no labor troubles in  the cam pi and as every preparation  had been made for a busy seisou  the order to shut down came as a  surprise. The three properties above  mentioned are the mainstay of  Moyie. The unemployed men have  scattered, the majority of them  coming to Nelson which has always  been the starting point of the  miner.          To Be Voluntarily Wound Up.   The shareholders in the Granite  Gold Mines, Limited, are in receipt  of a notice of au extraordinary general meeting of the company, to be  held in London, England, on May  (5th. The company is to be voluntarily wound up, as it has been  proved to the satisfaction of the  -directors that, by reason of its liabilities, it cannot continue its business successfully. William MeEwen,  a chartered accountant of London,  is, to be appointed liquidator. The  company's property is situated on  Etgle creek, six miles southwest of  Nelson,, and includes several, mineral claims in various stages of development.  Beautiful Snow.  B )b Heddle,' foreman of the  Venus mine is in town. He tried to  get up to the Venus yesterday, but  found an impediment in the way of  0�� feet of snow. This time last  year there were-scarcely two feet  of the beautiful on the groundup  in that altitude. As soon as the  atmosphere clears and the ground  is in condition operations will be resumed at the Venus.  Wires Must Come Off.  The fire, water and light committee of the council has decided  that the telephone company must  not string any more wires on the  c'ty'fl electric light poles and must  remove those already strung within  a reasonable time.

CUBANS EVIDENTLY WANT  MORE    THAN    UNCLE    SAM    IS  WILLING   TO   CONCEDE.  Do Not Want the Canadian Pacific to  Have Even a Chance to Build  a Railway.  Rossland, -April 10.���A large  and representative meeting was  held here tonight to discuss the  Coast-Kootenay railway. Speeches  were made by Smith Curtis, F. W.  Rolt, J. B. McArthur, and James  M. Martin, all of whom are Liberal-*.  The following resolution was passed  unanimously and certainly voiced  the sentiment of the citizens:  "Resolved, that it being assumed  that the provincial government will  not build the direct Coast-Kootenay  railway as a public work, but intends, as' declared in the speech  from tho throne, to subsidize a  company to build it, then it is the  emphatic opinion of this meeting  that such subsidy should go only  to a competitive line, entirely independent of the Canadian Pacific,  with provisions absolutely preventing any amalgamation with or control by the Canadian Pacific railway. Also, that such railway  should be extended at least as far  as the boundary at Cascade, and  that it is the' imperative duty of  the government, in the interest of  tho country, to have such railway  begun this spring and pushed to  completion at the earliest possible  date."       _J   Ladies' Progressive Whist.  The annual ball under the  auspices of the Ladies' Progressive  Whist Club was held last night,  when some sixty couples held the  floor at the opera house to the  lively strains of Mil ward's orchestra.  The .ladies in charge were^.indefatigable in their efforts to make  all comers happy,-;-and that they  were successful was the-unanimous  decisiou of those'--"who" ���participated'  in the evening's entertainment. The  committpo consisted of Mrs. E. C  Clarke, Mrs. A. Lapointe, Mrs. P.' J.  Russell, Mrs. J. Campbell, Mrs.  B��auvois, Mrs. Duhamel, Mrs. W. P.  Tierney, Mrs. T. Scanlan, Mrs. J.  Sturgeon and Mrs. Martin Madden.  Court House Accommodation.  A numerously signed petition  was yesterday presented to mayor  P/etcher .requesting him to call a  public meeting for the purpose of  discussing the necessity of increased  court house accommodation for  Nelson. The project is oue which  has formed the theme of many  grand jury presentments; it has  been the subject of bar society  resolutions; has been dwelt upon  by judges on circuit, and is a source  of generaj^pnblic complaint. The  mayor_lias, in compliance with the  requisition, fixed upon 8 o'clock tomorrow evening as the date for the  public meeting at the opera house.  Blairmore to the Front.  M. Lovell, a Slocan City hotel-  man, was in town yesterday^ having summed up the prospects of the  new town of Blairmore on the  Crow's Nest Pass line. The nearest  place of -importaince to the new  townsite is Port MeLeod, some 69  miles distant. The attractions of  the place are an extensive coal bed  and hot springs' possessing medicinal properties. The townsite people are about to. put up a $1500  hotel, and as they control the coal  deposits a lively little-settlement is  looked for. The lumber for the  hotel is already on hand, and operations are to commence forthwith.  It Is Feared the Relations Will be  Strained if the Former Insist  on All Their Demands.  THE GREAT STEEL TRUST  HAS   ALREADY    AN    OPPONENT  WORTHY OF ITS STEEL.  GONE TO HIS LONG HOME  .      Early Closing.  An agitation is on foot to have  the stores of the city closed one  evening during the summer months  a couple of hours earlier than usual.  The evening suggested is Friday,  but many of the merchants think  Wednesday a more convenient date  for early closing. With few exceptions all favor the move, and  that'in will prove successful there  is every reason for believing.  Sugar Importers Active.  London, April 11.���With the approach of the budget statement, the  excitement in the sugar market is  reaching fever heat. The wharves  at Hamburg are choked with sugar  waiting to be" shipped to England,  and there is such a run on vessels  that even colliers are being pressed  into service.  Washington, April 10.���Information was received at the war department today to the effect that  the Cuban constitutional convention is contemplating sending a  commission here to consult with  the president and the secretary of  war regarding the Piatt amendment and the relations of the  United States with Cuba. While it  is known that the administration  would much prefer to have the  constitutional convention accept  the Piatt amendment, instead of  sending such a commission, it would  rather the commission should visit  this country and discuss the subject  than that the Piatt legislation  should be rejected. Flat rejection  would leave matters in" a strained  condition.  The commission wvill visit this  country upon its own responsibility,  as an invitation to come might imply a disposition upon the part of  this government to make concessions. It has been suggested that  some of the most radical opponents  of the United States control the  members of the commission, in order that they might ascertain definitely what the situation is in the  United States.,- ��� There. has been  some discussion as to what such a  commission can accomplish by coming to Washington. It is said for  one thing that it can obtain definitely from the president and secretary of war a construction of the  Piatt amendment. The third section relating to intervention -is the  one which* meets-with the greatest  objection from the Cubans, and it  is believed tjhat the administration  can convince the delegates that  there is nothing but the best of intention on tne part of the government toward Cuba.  The delegation will ascertain, it  is said, that the Cubans can hope  for no modification of the law by  congress, and that nothing can be  accomplished by waiting foranother^  session. It will be made plain that  the present administration does not  wish any modification and that the  spirit of the Piatt amendment must  be accepted. The delegation will  be informed that they can tell the  members of the convention upon  their return that until the conditions of the Piatt amendment are  complied with the United States  will continue, to exercise authority  iu the islands under its military  powers.  ���There-is-a-desire-upon-the-partof-  the Cubans to have some information as to what may be meant by  coaling stations. It is understood  that the delegates have been given  an intimation that the selections  are not. likely to be made within  any of the cities of Cuba, but at  1 points which the United. States regards convenient for war ships.  Possibly the delegation may desire  additional assurances from the  president on this point when it  comes to the United States. As to  the time for"the visit of the commission there is no definite information. The president leaves  here for the west the last of this  month, and it is said -that he will  not see any delegation of this  character until after his-return.  Two Small FightB.'^  Louisville, April 10.���Tom Cou-  hig of Dunkirk, New York, was  given the decision tonight over  Eddie Connolly of New Brunswick  in the llth round of a 20-round  bout. Connolly was all but out  when the police stopped the fight.  Baltimore, April 10. ��� Harry  Lyons, the colored featherweight  of this city, defeated Tom Morari of  Brooklyn, here tonight. Moran's  seconds threw up the sponge in the  16th round to save him from being  knocked out. The match was for  20 rounds at 128 pounds.  Buffalo Strike Settled.  Buffalo, April 10.���A majority  of the six hundred planing mills  hands, who struck April 1st, and  the two hundred carpenters who  struck in sympathy last Monday,  will return to work tomorrow. A  settlement of the strike in the  planing mills was made tonight.  Tho Control of a Big Colorado Company  1 Passes Into the Hands of Men  Who Know Their Business.  Denver, April 10.���The reported  purchase of the Colorado Fuel &  Iron Company by. John W. Gates,  John Lambert, and I. L. Ell wood,  independent of the United States  Steel Corporation, received additional confirmation yesterday.  The following telegram has been  received from John W. Gates : I. L.  Ellwood, John Lambert and myself  now own the Colorado Fuel & Iron  Company.' We will add to our  present works in Colorado twenty  tin-plate mills, two rod mills, and  two blast furnaces. We met Gai rett  yesterday and arranged for the  immediate erection of the rod mills  under his'patents."  TCXXXXXXXXXZXXXXXXX&EXXXrcXIXX  XX3 XXXtXXXX^]  PEACE POSSIBLE  Capetown, April 10.���General Botha has reopened * negotiations with the British for  peace. As announced here, this  action was determined in part  by Botha's discovery at a recent meeting that general  Dewet's intellect had weakened,  and that his influence with his  followers was diminishing and  that a continuance of the campaign, in view of general Dewet's  irresponsibility, rested with  general Botha alone.  Capetown, - April 10.���It is  understood here that although  general Dewet, at his recent interview with gengral Botha, re-,  -fused- to surrender,- general  Botha regarding him* as irresponsible, undertakes to negotiate in behalf of the free Boer  forces. The British authorities  here consider that if general  Botha surrenders,- Dewet's following can be easily taken.  London, April 10/��� The report that general Botha has renewed the negotiations of lord  Kitchener is not yet officially  confirmed, but it is generally  credited, and is received with  satisfaction except by the ultra-  jingoes, who fear that the government will renew the terms  recently rejected. Regarding  general Dewet's_inental_condi^  tion reports have been very  conflicting for some time. His  recent inactivity points to there  being some truth in the rumors  which allege that long continued  hardships under the harrassing  British pursuit have unhinged  his mind. On the other hand,  a correspondent of the Times  quite recently acknowledged  "The wonderful foresight and  fertility of resource" which  characterized general Dewet's  retreat from Cape Colony. As  during the previous . negotiations, the British press again  loudly insist on "unconditional  surrender," but with the. budgetary necessities staring the  country in the face, if -hiegotia-  tions are reopened, the Boers,  as the Daily Chronicle remarks  editorially, "may reckon on fair  treatment" at the hands of the  British.  London, April 11.���"It is  semi-officially asserted here,"  says the Capetown corespondent of the Daily Telegraph,  "that general Botha has had  another interview with lord  Kitchener, in which he informed  him that he had seen general  Dewet, who still refused to  entertain the idea of surrender  on any terms. General Botha,  however, regards Dewet as no  longer responsible for his actions  aud seeks a modu9 vivendi on  behalf of all the burgher forces." Q  'jumiwiw  COUVER WORLD 13 DEAD.  TWO MEN LOSE THEIR LIVES  EDITOR M'LAOAN OF  THE  VAN-   IN     THE     BURNING     OF     THE  Was One of the Best Newspaper Men  in Canada, and Was Known  From Coast to Coast.  Vancouver, April 10.���[Special  to The Tribune.] ��� J. C. McLagan,  editor and proprietor of the World  died this evening.  J. C. McLagan was' born in Scotland over sixty years ago, and was  a resident of Canada for more than  fifty years. In the sixties he was  one of tbe owners of the Guelph  Herald.

He came to British  Columbia in the early eighties and  he and senator Templeman became  partners in publishing tlie Victoria  Times. From Victoria he went.to  Vancouver, and the Daily World is  a monument of his untiring industry and newspaper ability. Although he had many disagreements  with the men working for him, yet  all fair-minded printers and newspaper workers admit that McLagan  was good-hearted, even if he was  cranky at times. During his career  in this province no editor said so  many kind words" of his fellow  newspaper men, even if he did  "roast" them at times. He leaves a  widow and several children. One  son has long been connected with  the business department of the  World.        Will Tackle the Canal.,  London. April 10.���The Pall Mall  Gazette today, discussing a cabled  suggestion that J. Pierpont Morgan's visit to Europe concerns not  only the steel trust, but the Panama  canal project,' considers it probable  that the strong feeling of British  shipowners in Panama 'route has  some" influence" with* "Mr. "Morgan^  and says the White Scar line-officials issued special orders that no re-  [ porters bo allowed to board the  Teutonic at Queenstown, owing to  the presence bf Mr. Morgan on  board.       �� .

Some 1500  _ yards of-earth are to be removed,  an average depth of nine feet being  called for. To attain this an eleven-  foot cut will have to be made at  the south end of the plot. This  tapers down to seven feet at the  front on Vernon street.  STEAMER   ROYAL   CITY  WILL RUSSIA AND JAPAN  COME   TO  AN   UNDERSTANDING  WITHOUT A  FIOHT?  Several Others Had Narrow Escapes-  The Vessel Valued at $15,000 is  a Total Loss.  May Not Come to America.  New York, April 10.���Charles D.  Pierce, official representative in  New Yoik, gives positive denial  of the statement cabled from  Europe that president Kruger will  sail for the United States on May  31st. 'There is absolutely nothing  in the story," he said, "Mr. Kruger  may come in the fall, but not  sooner; he is taking the rest which  he needs so badly."     A Timely Hint.  Mike Ryan, a very troublesome  character who was locked up by  personal request on Saturday night,  was yesterday discharged- by the  police and given a strong hint that  the-sooner he bid adieu to Nelson  the better for himse.If-.and the community.    Mike took the hint.  The Shamrock Trials.

She  caught fire at 2 a. in., and the  wharfman barely had time to rouse  the crew. The fire broke out behind tbe boiler, and immediately  spread to several tons of hay nearby. J. West, one of the owners,  was on board with his two sisters.  He had a narrow escape rescuing  his sisters, aud captain Card was  nearly caught in the flames. The  hull sank at 4 o'clock this morning.  The steamer was valued $15,000 and  is a total loss.   Budget of Vancouver News.  Vancouver,  April 10.    [Special  to The Tribune.] ���W. H. Malkin,  a  oonlmissiqn   merchant,    and    Miss  Marion Douglas were married  this  morning.    E J. Duchesnay has been  appointed assistant general superintendent of the Pacific division  of  the Canadian Pacific railway with  headquarters   for   the   present at  Revelstoke.

The bodies of two  men   accidentally   drowned    were  found, one last night and the other  this morning.   The body of Duncan  Rowan, former reeve of Richmond*  municipality, who fell off a  wharf  here duiing a storm on a dark night  in December last was  found in a  net  here   today.

Hobson,  superintendent of the Cariboo   Hydraulic   Company.     The  principal  contention is that deep placer mining should be put "on the same footing as quartz mining.  German Steamer Held Up.  Bremerhaven, Germa_ny,_Ap_ril_  10.���Two bars of gold are. reported  to have been stolen from the North  German Lloyd steamer Kaiser  Wilhelm der Grosse during her last  trip across the Atlantic. The  steamship company has offered a  reward of 1000 marks for their return or the discovery of the thieves.  London, April 10.���Passengers of  the Kaiser Wilhelm de Grosse who  were landed at Southampton! told  a reporter of the Associated Press  that at Cherbourg, contrary to custom, the passengers had been kept  on board until 0 o'clock in the  morning. The officers of the steamer  explained that the tender had not  come out, but this failed to satisfy  the impatient passengers, who, how  ever.were quite ignorant until they  landed that,their detention was due  to the investigations consequent  upon the the theft and the precautions exercised at Cherbourg. But  the fact that these precautions were  not observed subsequently at Southampton was taken to indicate that  the officials believe the conspiracy  had its chief end on fihe continent.  The passengers aro inclined to believe that the robbery must have  been accomplished by an individual  exceptionally conversant with the  arrangements of the steamship  company, for not one of the cabin  passengers apparently knew there  was specie on board, much less  where it was.  Paris, April 10.���The only suspicious incident on board the  steamer was a fight between two  members of the crew on the evening of her arrival at Cherbourg,  during which both men were  stabbed with knives. A little later  the robbery was discovered. These  particulars have been telegraphed  to Bremen.  The   Chinese    Question   Has   Many  Phases and Is Being Discussed  in Many Capitals.  Yokohama, April 10.���TheNishin  Shingi Eshi, a leading  newspaper  whieh   reflects   the    government's  views, applauds Russia's judgment  and love of peace,   and   says   tho  great desiredatum now  is "the  restoration   to   the Chinese", government   of   effective authority,  and.  adds: "Russia cannot justly.be condemned for the adoption   of. measures to protect  rights , acquired  in  Manchuria.     Under   the    present  conditions, the duty  of preserving  order in Manchuiia would develop1'  upon those responsible for Russia's  withdrawal, and it would not conduce to Japan's interest to accept .  such a responsibility." .  Shanghai, April 10.���Brigands  have destroyed three towns in  Thibet. They' also captured and  tortured, according to French advices, a French priest named Mis-  sot. The viceroy of the province of.  Sze Chuen, at the' request of the*  French consul, has'sent a force to  rescue Missot.  Paris, April 10.���The Patrie today publishes a dispatch from St/  Petersburg, which says the. Chinese^  minister there,  Yang Yu, gravely  insulted count Lamsdorff. the Rus- .  sian minister offoreign affairs, during a discussion of the Manchurian -  question, whereupon the count or-_'  dered his   lackeys to   put the Chinese  minister out, and  Yang  Yii''  was thrown down stairs and fatally ;  injured in the head.

No one divined the full  extent of  the iniquity which has been deliber-  atedly   contemplated.     In  all   1S3  Protestant  missionaries,   including  60 men, 75 women, and 48 children,  have  been   massacred.     With  the  exception of the  massacres at  Ku  Chee in Cbb Kiang, in which eleven  persons were  killed,  and  in  Hong  Che in Haunan,  all  of the  deaths  occurred in the northern provinces.  The   question   has  been  raised  at  home as to whether the Boxers uprising    was   nnti foreign   or   anti-  missionary  in  its   character.     No  doubt-exists���in���the-mind-of���any-  well-informed person in China.  St. Petersburo, April 10.���The  Russian press is abandoning that  reserve with which it first discussed  the government's declaration on  the subject of Manchuria. It now  declares that the joy with which  the British press greeted China's  refusal to sign the Manchurian  agreement has merely postponed'  the signing of a new understanding  with "China. "One paper says: "Our  London friends overlooked the fact  that in dissuading the signing of  the agreement they did not hasten  the evacuation of Manchuria but  strengthened Russia's position."  London, April 11.���"M. Degiors  demands the return of all communications to the Chinese author- ���*  ities from the Russian legation regarding the Manchurian negotiations," says Dr. Morrison, wiring to  the Times from Pekin, "and he has  warned Li Hung Chang that, instead of being as has heretofore, tin  advocate of the Chinese cause iu  the conference of the ministers  of the powers, he will henceforth support the policy of the  utmost severity. Russia has still  ample means to indulge this spirit.  The report is current, but I believe  it is premature, that Russia has  already prepared a fresh form of  convention. Doubtless, however*,  when the process of intimidation  has been carried far enough, afresh  attempt will be made to recover  the lost ground."  " �����  - V3  >? v-v  - 3rf  'bVs-V  ->*sal  >.

Several names have  been suggested for the great honor.  David   Mark Carley, the eminent  editor  of  that   force   in national  politics, The Economist of Nelson,  suggests that the honor be conferred  , on doctor Sinclair of Rossland, who  is a life-long Liberal.   While admitting that the doctor is a life-long  Liberal, The Tribune must use its  influence     to     promote     another  "life-long Liberal. The Liberal party  in this province has few men  who  have made as many sacrifices for its  . principles as has John Buncombe  Kerr, who is the managing editor of  the   Rossland   Miner,   a   stalwart  p*rty organ.    Had it not been for  Mr. Kerr and the influence of the  paper   which   he   edits,   Big   Bill  -Galliher would not now be sitting  behind sir Wilfrid  Laurier in  the  house of commons.   The Tribune  believes in rewarding men who can  mold public opinion, and Mr. Kerr  stands head  and shoulders above  any other politician in Rossland in  that respect.  are at the point of starvation.

If the people can be  relieved of their agitators and be  allowed to work out their own  salvation, American capital can  then be directed towards Puerto  Rico with the assurance that it will  be welcome and be given adequate  returns."  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  The public meeting at the opera  house on-Friday night might go  beyond making a declaration on  the urgent need of a modern courthouse building at Nelson. It might  make a declaration on the urgent  need of government control, if not  ownership, of all railways to be  hereafter built in this province  under provincial charters. This is  a question of much greater importance to the people of Nelson  than the one of properly housing  _^those_who_are_required_to^transact  business in our higher courts pf  justice.  Nelson must be kept to the front.  The coast cities are striving for the  trade that is now handled by our  wholesale merchants. They have  powerful influences at work, influences that can be overcome if  only onr people are united and progressive.    Editor J. C. Mc-Lagan is dead.  Many a worse man lives.

Public school inspector James L.  Hughes of Toronto says Ontario is  'about-thirty years behind- the  times in matters of education.

The Canadian Manufacturers' Association has passed a resolution  urging the Dominion government  to appoint a commission to investigate the oil question ih Canada.  They passed a resolution also to the  effect that "it would be a mistake  for the government to reduce the  present duty on oil, as the present  rates charged by Canadian refiners  are not exorbitant.

Judge Pagnuelo of Montreal has  granted., an . order for winding up  the Investment Company, Limited.  The shareholders are located principally in Western Ontario and the  Maritime provinces. Much of the  capital of the company was invested  in mining stocks, and it is probable  the directors will be sued on the  ground that their charter did not  allow of such investment.

Trouble Between Bishop   and  Priest.  Hamilton, Ontario, April 10.���  The trouble between the bishop oi  Niagara and the Rev. Geoghamvn,  rector of St. Paul's church, has  reached an acuto phase. The  bishop some time ago suspended  Geoghanan from the priesthood for  immorality, but tho latter was restored on appeal to the house of  bishops.

The sign "Robertson & Co., Fur-,  niturc" was painted the other day  on the side of Thr Tribune's old of*?  fice, 'in the Hume block. It was  then deemed advisable to ply the  brush over the whole surface at tho  gable end, and in order to protect  che lettering, the sign was covered  -with,canvas. Those who witnessed  the operation of canvas:tacking  speculated as to the cause, some ar-  miing that the firm so recently located inthe building was going out  of business, while others contended  that it was to keep the sun off the  sign. Yesterday- the mystery was  cleared up by the removal of the  canvas, showing the lettering of a  clean, fresh  background.  PAINTS, OILS r\ND GLASS.  GAPDEN   TOOLS.
